Jammed camera The lens on my Digimax S800 Samsung camera is stuck in the open position and when I put new batteries in it and tried to turn it on it beeped three times then shut off with the lens still in the open position. What's up with that? Will I need to send it in to the manufacturer? Lew@LGervais.com

A temporary fix to power up is to press the menu and power button at the same time. When the lens is extended and it beeps, on my camera , the lens is *stuck* Give it a gentle tug , then try the power button again

I don't know how but the problem seemed to fix itself. I left it alone for a few weeks then put new batteries in the camera and it started working. A few weeks later the same thing happened again, it got jamed in the open position. I removed the batteries and re installed the same batteries and it started working again. I guess it hickups every once in a while.

I've had the same problem and tried several sets of (brand new) batteries and rechargeables before I found a set that had enough power to satisfy the samsung. It goes through batteries at an amazing rate.

Samsung Digimax S800 has lens stuck in open position. Replaced with fresh alkaline batteries, pressed on button, screen lit up for a second or so, turned off and gave 3 beeps. Any ideas? Thanks, Kevin


Did you accidentally drop it? If you did then there is a big chance that the lens is busted. If you didn't drop it, then it could be just dust/dirt inside the lens mechanism. Hold your camera with the lens facing the ground and then repeatedly tap it your camera gently - moderately to remove the dirt. You can also try spraying compressed air into it.

S800 lens won't close, can't take photos


The lens was bent to one side, so bump with my palm to straighten it back. I was able to start using my Samsung again.

Samsung digimax s800 not swiching on


The problem is that the lens is jammed. I had to take my camera apart to unjam mine manually, the cogs that move the lens are not lined up with each other, thats why you hear the motor turning and then you get the 3 beeps because the lens hasnt initialised

My samsung digimax s800 won't turn on,the batterys are ok


the lens mechanism is not initialising, the cogs that move the lens are out of alignment slightly. you colud try and fix this yourself by taking the camera apart and realigning it manually, or sometimes you can get hold of the prodtruding lens and gently pull, be carefull !! you might hear a grinding noise as you pull this is just the main lens cog turning. once fully out put batterys back in and give it a go

Put new batteries in, camera bleeps three times & switches off


hi meeshfriel,

The battery might be damaged. try recharged the battery at least 2 hours maximum of 4 hours. If the problem persist it is your battery needs to be replaced......


Thanks.

Lens mechanism can be stuck. Try gently to drag or straighten it.

Will not turn on


Sounds like your lens is stuck. Try a gentle tug and it should open all the way. Then you can power your camera down.
